Let us say there are 8 candies namely A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H

we are supposed to pick 3 piece for each pack. However order does not matter. In other words if we have a 3 pack candies as ABC we cannot have another pack as BAC they would be same. Hence this is a combination problem.

so the ans would be 8c3 or option B
